Tastes Like Salt

Tears taste like salt. Did you know that? He doesn’t reply. He touches my cheek. You have a pretty face, he says, pretty body too. His eyes wander down. I’ve seen this look before, from other men. He caresses my shoulder. He plays with me like a child. Don’t you like this?, he says. I … Continue reading Tastes Like Salt

With Your Friends You’ll Never Be Alone

She wakes up with the worst headache. Looks around. The house is a mess; every couch is filled with guys and girls; she herself slept awkwardly in a scruffy olivelike armchair. She lifts herself up, ready to stand from her bed, trips over something on the floor. It’s Bob, the world’s worst drunk. Not the … Continue reading With Your Friends You’ll Never Be Alone

For All My Girls In Line / Love Conquers All

Again we cross paths. You stop me, finally. I am ogling you up and down. It’s my favourite part of the day. Hey girl, look at you! If I am interested to date? Hell yes, I am! You caught me right on time; dating has been the one thing on my mind. You know, life … Continue reading For All My Girls In Line / Love Conquers All

Vocal Cords & Verbal Abuse: Stephen – Play Me Like A Violin

The noise in our kitchen is all-encompassing. Upon hearing it, my mind is once again in freeze mode. The kitchen knife in my hand; potato unfinished. It’s like I have paused our little discussion and I see the frequency of your vocal cords reflected in the kitchen wall, which has started to colour deeply yellow … Continue reading Vocal Cords & Verbal Abuse: Stephen – Play Me Like A Violin

Genius and Aloneness: Tokio Myers – Angel

'It's not me, it's you', she had said. She had looked at you in pity, down in Donnie Darko's good ol' fashioned downtown's diner, where you two first met. You thought she was different, unique. Why else would she have been in that shabby ol' jazz diner? At the time, you thought you could lose … Continue reading Genius and Aloneness: Tokio Myers – Angel

To That Special Someone (You Know Who You Are): Dropkick Murphys – Rose Tattoo

  I’d wake up every morning and before I’d start each day, I’d take a drag from last night’s cigarette that’s smoldered in its tray, down a little something and then be on my way. This song’s all about loving that certain special someone throughout life. Life is painful, and rough, no matter who you … Continue reading To That Special Someone (You Know Who You Are): Dropkick Murphys – Rose Tattoo

Come Dance With Me: Oscar and the Wolf – “Moonshine” live @Pias Nites

The moon lits up the whole terrace. There's something magical about waking up at night, stepping out into the winter cold, listening to the city silence, growing a tobacco cigarette and thinking of that same old same old piece of writing wrapped up in your wollen jacket pocket. You look at the ink on the … Continue reading Come Dance With Me: Oscar and the Wolf – “Moonshine” live @Pias Nites

Go for The One Who Doesn’t Like You: Martin Solveig – Rejection

  So I read an article the other day. About romance. Don't go for the one who obviously doesn't like you. That's what I learnt. Cause you deserve better - ... Wait. ... Wait. ... I'm sorry. I had to restrain myself from laughing my ass off there. Aaaaahaa ... Rejection. Yes. Rejection. It hurts, … Continue reading Go for The One Who Doesn’t Like You: Martin Solveig – Rejection

Mind Tricks in Relationships: Warhaus – Love’s a Stranger

  In love, we all want to possess that one loving perfectionistic mask, the ultimate partner for life, the soulmate of my own mask, behind which lies the ultimate mess. The things one can do with artistic vulnerability and a 300€-camera. They say it's naive (how we're passing by) trying to look the entire world … Continue reading Mind Tricks in Relationships: Warhaus – Love’s a Stranger

Fight Club But With Words: Charles Pasi – Farewell My Love

  You treat me bad, you make me weep and more, ... you drive me mad. That's what my girlfriend says. And apparently she knows this place couples go to. It's a place somewhere underground called a "fight club". And couples go there for couple therapy. They punch each other with words in the comfort … Continue reading Fight Club But With Words: Charles Pasi – Farewell My Love
